The man in a medieval dress draws everyone’s attention in the Grand Mosque.

Security authorities at the Grand Mosque in Makkah arrested a 40-year-old man wearing unusual attire inside the mosque on Tuesday and Wednesday. The individual was later transferred to the Bureau of Investigation and Prosecution.

Lt. Col. Atti Al-Qurashi, official spokesman of Makkah police, said the individual entered the Grand Mosque in Makkah on Tuesday evening unusually dressed causing many pilgrims to gather around him to take photos resulting in congestion and disturbance to other worshippers.

He said that the man refused to heed calls by security officers to wear more appropriate attire to avoid disturbing the pilgrims but he returned on Wednesday evening dressed in the same outfit. The security officers then arrested him and referred his case to the Bureau for further legal action.
